I am bored. Bored bored bored. I’m bored.
And I’m stuck on blog topics, because everything I think of seems boring too.
I do have some good news though. I managed to write 10k words this weekend, bringing the Unholy Ghosts sequel up to just over 46k. Yay me! It was actually just Friday and yesterday, really, as saturday we were doing family things. By which I mean sitting on the couch watching tv.
Watched The Devil Wears Prada. Disliked the book, disliked the movie. Blah.
I’ve been searching through my archives, because I know I did a post about terms of endearment at one point, in which I discovered how many women disliked heroes who calltheir heroines “baby”. “Baby” as a keyword didn’t bring it up; “endearment” didn’t either, and neither did “term”. So, I do’t know where it is.
But once again I find myself stuck. I need an endearment.
See, for me these things are A Big Deal. What the hero calls the heroine matters. It tells us something about him, about their relationship. (At least in books; in real life the hubs and I call each other “baby” all the time and it never occurred to me to think of it as meaning anything specific.)
So here’s what I need. I need a term of endearment. Something sweet and adoring but not cheesy. Something a Very Tough Guy would say, which rules out anything too smooth.
It won’t really come into play for some time. But I’m bored and stuck and thought this might be fun.
So. Must be in English. Can be archaic. Must not be smooth or sophisticated. Must not be any variations of “sweetcheeks”.
Have at it. See if you can think of anything. Be as outrageous as you want. Be funny. Be serious. I don’t care.
Throw in some compliments if you like. Some silly pick-up lines. Whatever you like. This will either be amusing or no one will comment at all, so… I leave it up to you.
